Ring in the New Year Right at The Wayfarer

The year may be winding down, but here in DTLA, the party is just getting started as we prepare to ring in the new year. Saturdays through December 31, you can peruse the Holiday Wonderland at Grand Central Market, the ideal spot for seasonal shopping and workshops, photo shoots with family, tasty bites, live music, and visits with Old Saint Nick, plus games and other activities for the little ones. Every day through January 8, strap on your skates and head over to Pershing Square Holiday Ice Skating Rink or the L.A. Kings Holiday Ice at L.A. Live for hours of family fun spent cutting figure eights out on the ice. If you’re a craft cocktail lover, you simply must book your reservations for Holiday High Tea & Highballs at Lilly Rose, where the West Coast’s finest bartenders are constantly concocting new ways to please your palate. And what of New Year’s Eve, you say? The Wayfarer has you covered there too: indulge in star Chef Victor Morales’s gourmet NYE Prix Fixe Dinner at the Rooftop. Then, after your multi-course feast, descend into the wild world of Lilly Rose for their highly-anticipated New Year's Eve Open Bar & Dance Party. Return the next day for a mellow start to 2023 at Hangover High Tea & Highballs, only at Lilly Rose.
